Official coffee partner announced
LavAzza has been announced as the new Official Coffee Partner of Princess Cruises and as such will begin serving coffee products on all Princess ships this spring.
“Princess guests love their coffee as a morning ritual in the International Café on the legendary Princess Square”, said John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises. “With a relentless focus on what matters to our guests, we enhance the experience and enhance our Italian heritage with Lavazza.”
The LavAzza range includes not only a selection of hot coffee, but also ready-to-drink cans. But the coffee partnership goes beyond drinks.
LavAzza, along with Princess Executive Chefs, will help curate coffee-inspired dinners and specially designed recipes, adding a decadent flavor to every menu. In addition, education, tastings, food pairings and tastings will also be part of the cruise ship coffee experience, giving coffee lovers even more opportunities to discover their favorite beans.
The two brands will also collaborate on upcoming marketing campaigns, promotions and exclusive events.
“We have been inspired by the way Princess Cruises creates unforgettable experiences for their guests and feel a strong synergy between both brands in our commitment to quality, innovation and entertainment.” said Camille Vareille, Vice President, Head of Marketing Americas at Lavazza Group.
“We are excited to come on board to offer an elevated coffee program and introduce our premium products to a broader, international audience.”
As Princess Cruises welcomes millions of guests to worldwide destinations each year, the partnership is indeed an international one, but no precise timeline has been announced for the rollout of LavAzza products across the fleet.

Different ships are likely to start delivering different products at different times depending on available supplies, delivery schedules and other factors, but such high-quality offers are certainly welcomed.
“Our Lavazza partnership gives our guests one more thing to love about a Princess vacation,” said Padgett.
